Cherry Creek Real Estate
What is now known as the Cherry Creek neighborhood was once the town of Harman – Denver’s first suburb, established in the late 1870s. Originally a middle- and working-class neighborhood of modest homes and bungalows, Cherry Creek has since evolved into an interesting and diverse residential neighborhood with a value and prestige that people are willing to pay for.
Whether its turn of the century architecture with expansive grounds or a new custom build on a smaller lot, price tags for these impressive Cherry Creek homes tend to match the demand. However, because the neighborhood is quite diverse, not all the homes are out of the average buyer’s price range. Many Cherry Creek condos and townhomes start in the low $300’s, with many options below $500,000.
The main zip code for Cherry Creek real estate is 80206. Cherry Creek homes are bounded by Colorado Blvd, University, 6th Avenue and Exposition.
Cherry Creek Amenities
What’s unique about Cherry Creek real estate is that it is a self-contained city within a city. Practically everything you need is in the community, from grocery stores to Louis Vuitton, libraries to Yoga centers. Shoppers gravitate to the Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Denver’s most dazzling mall, with a high concentration of prestigious stores: Neiman Marcus, Michael Kors and Tiffany & Co. and many more. Just across the street, the Cherry Creek North Shopping District offers 50 pedestrian-friendly blocks of art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and shops. This area is also home to the Cherry Creek Arts Festival – a three-day celebration of art and music from around the world.
In addition to a busy Whole Foods Market, locals enjoy the organic produce and products found at the Cherry Creek Fresh Market – a farmers market located in the mall parking lot every Wednesday and Saturday morning from May to October. Runners celebrate spring at the Cherry Creek Sneak – one of the most popular (and fun) races of the year for all age groups. The 22-mile Cherry Creek path, which runs alongside the meandering Cherry Creek for which the neighborhood is named, is a haven for runners, walkers and cyclists year-round: in fact, many Cherry Creek homeowners use it to bike to work.
